We’ll be hosting a Family Paint Night on Thursday, November 20 from 6:15-8:15.  Come enjoy an evening with your family before the hectic holiday season begins.  You can register for this event at the North Raleigh Kidz Art website.  Tickets cost $40 for a parent and a child (combined) and then $15 apiece for each additional child or parent.  The DRMS PTA will receive $10 for each family registration.

On that evening, we’ll stage a Marcos Pizza dinner sponsored by the DRMS Booster Club at 5:30 where we’ll sell a pizza, drink, chips combo for $3.50 (items also sold separately).  This meal will be directly followed by a General PTA Meeting at 6:00, which will run up until the Family Paint Night festivities begin at 6:15.
